Urgh!!

So, Andrew was supposed to have his appointment yesterday with the infant and toddler behavior specialist (in regards to his head hitting). The appointment was at 2:30, so I left work early at 2:00, picked Andrew up at home, and off we went. We had the hubby drop us off there. First, I thought it was in Peds, but it wasn't, so I had to go up the elevator to the third floor, run across the skywalk, and take another elevator up to the 4th floor where Pediatric Specialties is. Then I get to the desk to check-in and the receptionist tells me the doctor had to leave (this is as Andrew freaks out because I wouldn't set him down and he was having a temper tantrum). She had to pick her son up from daycare because he had a fever, and it had JUST happened. She says she can reschedule me for Friday, but I tell her I can't do that because I can't get off work early (I already left early Monday for the ultrasound, and then this the very next day).

So, since the hubby was going to pick us up in another hour at 3:30, I had to chase Andrew around the clinic. Yeah, for an hour.

I missed two hours of work all for nothing. We're not even going back. I'm sure he'll grow out of this anyway. I'm just frustrated because I was really looking forward to the appointment. Guess it wasn't meant to be.

crappy!!!!!! That is one of those things that really pisses you off, yet you can understand needing to leave work for a sick kid. I feel for you and your hour of waiting for dad to come back and get you, torture!

I would have been pissed, you think they would have had another doctor to take her place for situations like that where she had to leave! My two year old nephew does the same thing though, so don't worry to much! He gets mad and walks up to a wall and hits his head on it..and then gets pissed some more LOL! I honestly just think it's their age! It's a bummer you had to miss work for nothing!
